merging my pictures and cards

Seattle Mariners

2011 csd All Star Glossy – Michael Pineda

I first heard of Michael when he went up against the White Sox early this season. He had a good game, but most people do when they face the Sox for the first time. He did have good games against other teams though, and was selected to the All Star game. (more…)

1990 Upper Deck – Justin Smoak

Here is another card that I made with a picture of Justin that I took earlier this season. I really liked his swing, and took a few pictures of it. I thought that the two pictures that I wanted to use would look good on an early Upper Deck template. (more…)

1989 Upper Deck – Justin Smoak

Earlier this season I saw the Mariners play a game against the White Sox. I had heard so much about Justin Smoak that I was intrigued to watch him play the last couple of seasons. He was a very highly thought of prospect that is finding his way in the bigs right now. I thought I would make a couple of Upper Deck cards with some of the pictures that did not make it onto his ’11 custom card. (more…)

2011 csd All Star Glossy – Brandon League

With the All Star game being played tonight I thought I would put out some of my All Star Glossy cards that I have been making. I like the retro design, and besides that meant that I didn’t have to come up with a design of my own for this set. I thought that I would start today off with Brandon. (more…)

1985 Fleer – Brendan Ryan

I was very busy yesterday so I did not get around to posting any cards. I almost made it through today without getting a chance as well. I chose this card of Brendan because he became one of the players I follow after 2009. I saw him play a couple of games at Busch Stadium. He was a fan favorite at home because of his mustache. I took one of my favorite sports pictures of Brendan during a picture day at the stadium during that weekend. That picture found its way into my 2010 custom set. You can see the card and picture here. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Felix Hernandez

I was upset earlier last week when I realized that I had a prior engagement and could not attend the Seattle game with the Sox that King Felix was pitching. I saw him pitch in 2009 and was looking forward to seeing him pitch again. I was at the game the next day though, and Felix was hanging out in the outfield during batting practice. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Carlos Peguero

Carlos as I said yesterday made this set because he hit a ball in BP that I caught. He really has some power. He cranked one that went just foul to right field during the game. It was not foul by much, but thankfully it did go foul. He seems to be able to crank it from both sides f the plate. Time will tell whether or not he will be a star. If the small power display I saw is any indication he will be. (more…)

1985 Fleer – Carlos Peguero

Carlos worked his way onto this site. I had never heard of him until yesterday. He was taking some balls in left field when I noticed him during batting practice Wednesday. When he came up to the plate in BP he was the only one in his group going yard. I would only pay attention when he came up, but he was hitting the balls way too far to my left for me to get to. Then he hit one right at me. I only had to move a row or two down, and I put my mitt up and had my first MLB ball of the season. (more…)

1985 Fleer – Ichiro Suzuki

Last night I was at the Mariners game against the White Sox. I have always liked watching Ichiro play so I thought that he should be the first card that I put out from the game. I like the ’85 Fleer Mariners card so I decided that all the cards I need to make should be from that set. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Ichiro

You know a player is very good when nobody ever uses his last name. (more…)
